How can you improve your sound effect’s impact?
Part of this begins with each track’s name. I wrote earlier about why a sound effect’s name is vital, and shared 15 tips for naming sound clips.
Not every sound effect has a perfect name. And, in the case of legacy DVD or CD libraries, they may have barely any name at all.
It’s easy to correct a single name, or even a dozen. What happens whey you find yourself working with a collection of thousands of unnamed files? No one has time to fix a horde of mysterious files one at a time.
So, today I’ll finish off the second “Metadata Month” by showing how you can do this more quickly using batch renaming.
Many metadata apps can rename sound libraries. However, the apps can be expensive. Batch renaming does this simply, free of charge or inexpensively, often using just the apps included with your OS.
It’s not hard. You don’t need to be a power user. However, it is a bit more involved, and does require concentration. Set aside some time, grab yourself a coffee, and settle in. I’ll guide you through the process.
